Box & Scandal Review by Mel – May 2019

Thank you to Rob, who owns Box & Scandal for asking us to review their Subscription Service. You all know from my previous reviews that I am a fan of convenience Sub Boxes. My life is madness, I am a Manager, run BoXession, and am the proud owner of 3 Boys, one of which is a 37 year old Man of course!

Anything I can do to make my life easier, I am up for. I do all of the household Shopping from Milk through to Undies, so I was eager to check this one out for myself. I know that I am not alone in the fact us Women will order things like this for our Fellas. We generally are the more organised of the sexes. If I was to ask my Rob to order something online I would immediately expect the sounds of a stroppy Teenager to follow.

I of course did ask him if he would try them out for me, for review purposes, and he was a willing subject, so here we are! These arrived via Royal Mail, they were covered with an outer plastic bag. I am a fan of this because I know how easily things are damaged. Nobody wants unwanted spillages on their pants!

If you missed my live unboxing on our Facebook Group, you can watch it back there, or on our YouTube Channel by clicking play below…

What we received…

3 Pairs of Undies! But to my surprise these were all meant to be the same size! They sent us a M, L, and XL. So only one of the pairs we can test out for the review.

The delivery options are:

How to size up?

Check out the size guide on their Website before ordering, the descriptions to go alongside the image below, are hilarious! It includes details of how to measure, to ensure you are getting the best fit!

About The Pants

I had to copy this from their Website, as once again the description was hilarious!



Our story starts in the ancient fields of the Indus Valley, legendary home of the finest cotton in the world. Fit for monarchs and statesmen, the limited harvest each year ensured that this cotton only reached the finest of derrieres. We couldn’t get hold of that cotton, so we just found some other really soft, comfortable cotton instead and made our pants out of that. You’re welcome.

Testing The Pants

Well of course I can’t wear them, but I had a willing subject I made earlier! As I mentioned further up, Rob can only test one pair due to the incorrect sizes being sent to us in error.

He wore them last night for our trip out to the Cinema. He said they are really comfy and it is a shame that he will not be able to wear the others. I told him to take them to work and see if anyone wants them, he said he may get some weird looks for that!

I washed them today, and they seem to have held their shape well, so far so good on that front.

The Verdict?

I must admit, we were both disappointed that only one of the pairs he can wear and keep, and if we had paid for them we would want more sent out to us to replace the incorrect ones.

The actual subscription itself I think is a fantastic idea. Would we subscribe? Hmm it is hard to say, I would like to say yes but I am a stickler for Customer Service so I will sit on the fence for now.

Thank you for reading as always,
